This handy – and possibly addictive! – tool not only includes live data on which teams, players, and brands get mentioned most frequently, but also features tabbed links to the feeds of official World Cup sponsors and to live Twitter and Instagram feeds that follow the official FIFA World Cup hashtags.
The Cheermeter gives you free access to live data, creating a “social stadium” where you can learn who is a crowd favorite and who is in danger of being booed off the pitch. Even better, it lets you join in the cheers. Just use any official World Cup hashtag in your posts, and they will appear on our live feed!
Though only 32 teams will grace the pitch during the tournament, the matches will be broadcast in more than 200 countries around the world.
Football fever runs high worldwide: an estimated 3.2 billion people tuned in to the 2010 FIFA World Cup matches in South Africa.
